Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing terror attacks across the world

There are concerning developments and trends that call for more efforts in the joint fight in response to terrorism. These trends are leading to transfer and diversion of small arms and light weapons to terrorists, the increasing prominence of IEDs in terrorist attacks, and the growing problem of terrorists using unmanned aerial systems. Attack lethality has increased by 26 per cent, making them more deadly. The biggest immediate asymmetric danger to world stability and prosperity, as well as the security of citizens, is terrorism. Terrorism is a continuous worldwide problem that transcends national boundaries and religious and national boundaries. Ammunition is a crucial component in combating terrorist attacks, and it’s critical to accurately identify the kind of ammunition that needs to be used for military purposes.

Restraint: Cost of procurement

The capital expenditure of ammunition is high, which acts as a restraint in the market. Some countries present in the developing and developed regions need help to cope with the high capital and maintenance costs. Ammunition is necessary for armed forces but cannot be afforded by many middle- and low-income countries to advance the military bases. These countries may also fall into the trap of trading illicit ammunition as it is cheaper than the original products.

Opportunity: Increasing number of modernization schemes by defence forces

The acquisition of platforms, technologies, and weapon systems is part of the Defence Armed Forces’ modernization process, which is ongoing and dependent on threat perception, operational requirements, and technological advancements to maintain the armed forces’ readiness to handle a wide range of security threats. Governments place the utmost importance on ensuring the armed forces are adequately outfitted to fulfil any operational demand. This is accomplished by introducing new equipment and modernizing capabilities through technology. Many countries have increased their military might by obtaining cutting-edge equipment and munitions in response to the rising number of armed domestic and international conflicts. Modernization plans are being used by the armed forces of growing countries, such as China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, India, and Turkey. This has led to a significant increase in defence spending on ammunition procurement and R&D initiatives in the armed forces, as well as modernization programmes to improve and upgrade inspection standards and improve firepower benefits in terms of range, mobility, precision, and lethality.

Challenges: Sales of illicit ammunition

The possible involvement in enabling the trafficking of ammunition has grown in the wake of recent terrorist acts in many regions. The most dangerous aspect of the sales of illicit ammunition is its ability to arm terrorists and criminals in secret, as well as obsessive and vulnerable people. According to the survey, almost 25% of the guns available for purchase on the dark web are imported from Europe.
